comment Proof showing that dollar cost averaging always worse than lump sum alternative
What if I told you that dca hugely outperforms a lump-sum investment approach if instead of investing the parts at time-shifted periods you instead disregards time and buy companies with great fundamentals but depressed stock prices because of overall market sentiment-- this is not what we generally mean by dollar cost averaging. This is fundamental analysis-- a popular strategy to pick stock. Dollar cost averaging is designed to avoid picking stocks/analyzing stocks specifically.

comment The Fair Value of Paying in Currency X for Goods Bought in Currency Y
But the problem is that if they insist on paying me in EURO, how much should I charge them? 100 EUR? or 105 EUR?

comment How useful is the genetic algorithm for financial market forecasting?
@quant_dev, the problem with this is that GA-- like any other quantitative methods-- only works with short time scale, if I'm not mistaken. So if stock market is more like a stock market, then GA would be completely useless.
